PT Agincourt Resources (PTAR) continues to increase production targets and strengthen the Martabe Improvement Program (MIP) implementation as it enables the Company to produce efficient, effective, and innovative products. We aim to adhere to industry best practices in the sustainability management of its mining operations.
ENVIRONMENT & BIODIVERSITY
PTAR continues to analyse and report on the Company’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions linked with its operations. To further improve our efforts, we are collaborating with external consultants to analyse and refine the techniques utilised to estimate emissions data in accordance with international standards.
Waste rock management is one of the main environmental concerns at the Martabe Gold Mine. The placement of waste rock is carried out by using the encapsulant method, namely using non-acidic rocks to cover acidic rocks to prevent acid-forming materials.
Another significant activity related to biodiversity is establishing a biodiversity advisory panel. The panel will actively conduct fauna conservation such as Tapanuli Orang Utan Protection, Sumatera Tiger Conservation, and multi stakeholder partnership to conserve and preserve the biodiversity within Batangtoru Forest. We have also done flora enrichment by planting local seeds in areas surrounding the Martabe Gold Mine.
